Running a business comes with its own set of challenges, including inevitable disagreements among business partners. At J&J Legal, our goal is to provide the solve and avoid a one size fits all approach to entity formation, business succession planning, and conflict resolution. We take time to get to know our corporate clients and the needs of their enterprise—considering growth, risk mitigation, tax implications, and long-term flexibility as well as the work ethic and corporate vision of the owners
Selecting an entity impacts how a business will function, be taxed, and be transferred. Additionally, corporate governance and other operational documents dictate the rights and obligations of shareholders and officers, conflict resolution procedures, terms and conditions of employment, finance, and a myriad of other issues. Having an experienced attorney draft these documents at the outset can help minimize the opportunity for future conflict and provide legal protection.
When internal disputes arise among shareholders, partners, and/or members, the financial impact can be devastating, particularly if conflicts escalate into expensive and protracted litigation. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to minimizing financial strain and protecting the assets of the enterprise when disputes arise. We encourage our clients to have guidelines in place to resolve disputes and to resolve conflicts out of court, where remedies not traditionally available in litigation can be explored. The solve approach to resolving shareholder and partnership disputes draws on our years of prior litigation experience. We counsel clients on the risks of litigation and endeavor to help our clients resolve disputes efficiently and creatively, saving them time and money. Alternatives to confrontational and expensive litigation include negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
